EDCTP calls and grants

In 2011, six calls for proposals were launched including three for Senior Fellowships, two open and one attached to EDCTP Networks of Excellence (NoEs); two for strengthening ethics review capacity; one for Member States Initiated projects (MSI) and one Strategic Primer Grants. This last scheme provides pump-priming to allow researchers to explore novel and innovative approaches to research that may lead to the development and testing of new or improved clinical interventions against HIV/AIDS, malaria or tuberculosis. By the end of 2011, EDCTP has funded (contract signed) 196 projects to a total amount of approximately € 356 million including cofunding. Of these projects, 44 are on HIV/AIDS research, 31 on tuberculosis research and 34 on malaria research, and the remaining 87 projects were non-disease specific.

Grants signed in 2011

A total of 32 grant contracts were signed: 2 grants for Integrated Projects on Clinical Trials, 9 Senior fellowships, 15 Ethics/IRB support, 3 grants to evaluate clinical trials in Africa, and 4 Member States Initiated projects.
